Major League Baseball wants the campaign of Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) to return a $5,000 donation, ESPN reported on Sunday.

 

An MLB spokesperson told an ESPN reporter the donation was made in connection with an event league lobbyists were asked to attend. The league “has requested that the contribution be returned,” the spokesperson said.

 

The money was given the campaign through the league’s political action committee that operates under the commissioner’s office.

 

Other major organizations, including Walmart, AT&T, Leidos, Union Pacific and Boston Scientific, have made similar requests for the return of donations from the lawmaker’s campaign after reports surfaced that she recently made a joke about attending a hypothetical “public hanging.”

 

The remark, which she made on the campaign trail, drew heavy criticism in a state with an ugly history of terrorizing blacks with lynchings.

Poor darling - she's just a vicitm of her environment - educated by racist "Christian Academies", a family of racists and a political party of Nazis, KKK and white supremacists.  She's just doing what she was raised to do, like most other GOPers these days.


I, like her, am a registered Republican. Are you calling me a Nazi, Kluxer and white supremacist??  If not, how can you level that charge on her?

 

 

Nope - nobody is calling you any of those things.

 

You asked - " how can you level that charge on her?"

 

Easy Peasy - she's a born and raised racist -  a slightly different kind of racist compared to trump - but a "sure enough" racist.

No matter how many times you try to relabel her, she is a racist. 

She has given us video, audio, commentary, actions, and photos to support her racism. Now, trump will probably reinforce that, by trying to claim she is not a racist...just like he is not a racist!

 

Never Forget


The point seems to be "public lynching". Are you expanding it?

Racists embrace each other....it gives them an excuse.


It has nothing to do with any racism on her part, it is all about the Dems having no marketable agenda or candidates so they have weaponized the politics of race, gender, etc. to run on.


And the recognized racist - trump - is going to campaign for Hyde-Smith in Mississippi - tell more of his customary lies, and maybe even try out some racist lies he usually doesn't tell...

Will he go off message and make up a completely new lie - or stick with trusted lies?

Racists will seize upon any excuse to engage in disingenuous apologetics for racism, right wing hatred and right wing violence...
